The undead are actually the ones that aren't "true undead," in the classical sense. I've gone on and on before about how their organs function when they wouldn't if they were a walking corpse, but a fact I had never noticed until today is that there actually ARE classical undead in Dark Souls. And they are known, strangely enough, as "The Dead."

So, The Dead = Zombies, Skeletons, Lichs, etc.
The Undead = Normal humans, that are cursed to never die.

Or at least, that's how it seems.

Yeah, it's strange. For a game about the undead, you'd think the Necromancers would've played a more pivotal role... but as always, I guess something else is going on.
